My name is Priscilla Farinazzo. I am Brazilian, married for 7 years. We have two daughters: Sophia, 4, and Maya, 18 months. Both of them were born in Quebec. We have been living in Quebec city for 6 years now and we love this city, due to its natural beauty, its culture, its costumes and traditions. I strongly admire the way people here enjoy every season. It’s inspiring! I admire the way people help and treat each other, above all, with respect. Those are very important values for me. My parents are Brazilian. I have Italian roots. I have a younger sister who lives in the U.S with her husband. My favorite place on Earth is the beach! 🙂 I am a chocoholic! 😀 I love swimming. I am a big music fan. I practice minimalism as a lifestyle.
I have a bachelor degree in English (and Portuguese) teaching. I have graduated in Brazil in 2005. I have started a master degree in Cinema & Literature, but I have quit before the end. I have started to work as an English teacher in 2004, in several private schools in Brazil. As the years went by, I saw myself working as a teacher for children, teens, and adults. I have realized I felt happier and more motivated about my job when I taught to children (preschoolers and first grades), joining their magical perception of the world, their passion for everything that is new, their authenticity in the way they experience their emotions and their learning. I feel my professional purpose is to give children my best to help them learning new languages, having fun while learning, keep them safe, care about their well-being, help them grow as good people, knowing the difference between good and bad.
I am passionate about my profession. I am a proud teacher. There is nothing that could bring more joy to my professional life. I am amazed at their learning process and development. My professional life in Quebec started in 2012, I worked as a volunteer at Eastern Quebec, at Saint-Charles-Garnier school as an English teacher for first grades, at Ursulines with a kindergarten group, in a daycare downtown from 2013 to 2017, as a substitute teacher at Vision, for 1st graders, back in 2012/2013. I have started to work at Petite École Vision Sillery as a substitute teacher in January, 2018. I brought my oldest daughter with me due to Vision’s positive environment, a helpful and loving staff and principals, its pedagogy and professionalism. I have found a place where I feel I belong, where people take care of each other. I am committed to give my best every day for our children, to offer them a positive, joyful and rich learning environment, connecting with each child, in their own pace, unique as they are, each one in its own way.
I make myself available for anyone to contact me, I will be more than happy to help!
